Based on a one-page story by Ambrose Bierce, this album is a joint collaboration in musical theatre between composer David Lang and playwright Mac Wellman that recounts the tale of an unusual disappearance and ensuing reactions. The story takes place in 1854 near Selma, Alabama, where a planter named Williamson has vanished without a trace while crossing a field. The Harlem String Quartet and a prestigious list of New York City’s established and emerging talent in opera and theatre combine arias with spoken text, emotional melodies with tense drama.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
